Moon phase and lunation details

2 days after Full Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the Full Moon before 2 days on 6 November 2052 at 21:09.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the evening and sets in the morning. It is visible to the southwest and it is high in the sky after midnight.

Moon in ♊ Gemini

Moon is passing about ∠25° of ♊ Gemini tropical zodiac sector.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1971"

Lunar disc appears visually 1.7% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1971" and ∠1938".

Beaver Moon before 2 days

Next Full Moon is the Cold Moon of December 2052 after 26 days on 6 December 2052 at 07:18.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.

Lunation 653 / 1606

The Moon is 17 days old. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the middle to the last part of current synodic month. This is lunation 653 of Meeus index or 1606 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.75 days

Length of current 653 lunation is 29 days, 17 hours and 59 minutes. It is 1 hour and 14 minutes shorter than next lunation 654 length.

Lunation length longer than mean

Length of current synodic month is 5 hours and 15 minutes longer than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 48 minutes shorter, compared to 21st century longest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠138.2°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠138.2°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠165.7°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after perigee

1 day after point of perigee on 7 November 2052 at 21:03 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 November 2052 at 23:40 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Distance to Moon 363 600 km

Moon is 363 600 km (225 931 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 13 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 406 619 km (252 661 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 4 November 2052 at 03:03 in ♈ Aries, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 16 November 2052 at 18:46 in ♍ Virgo.

Draconic month

19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon in northern standstill

At 18:39 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠18.287°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-18.363° in its southern standstill point on 23 November 2052 at 20:41 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 11 days

After 11 days on 21 November 2052 at 09:02 in ♏ Scorpio, the Moon will be in New Moon geocentric conjunction with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Moon-Earth syzygy.
